Exemption is a three-piece aggressive progressive rock outfit that started on Long Island in 2004 when the members were only 13 and 14. In 2007 they put out their first full-length, "The Rabbit Hole." In 2009 they released the "Harmony of the Spheres EP," and in October 2010 they put out their second full-length "Public Cemetery Party." Their sound has evolved into something truly their own, combining progressive metal, stoner rock, pop, blues, and alternative ambiance once earning them the title of the "bastard children of the Beatles (The Metal Den)." Check out http://exemption.bandcamp.com to hear some music, all the releases are available on iTunes and Cdbaby.com. This blog is for the members to share stories and news with their friends and fans.

I'll have a new vocals "episode" of our In-the-Studio Video Updates up soon.  We have been very productive with our vocal  sessions.  We're already about halfway done with tracking and they are coming out awesome!  I can safely say that the three of us have never been as excited about our recorded material as we are right now.  It feels great.  We are not announcing a release date or the album name just yet but expect that very soon!
We have some awesome shows coming up this summer also!
-July 3rd at the Bitter End (nyc) -Vision Through Sound's nyc cd release show!

I'd also just like to thank our friend Mike inMidnight Mob for plugging Exemption in his interview withMurphguide.com.  Clickhereto  check out the article.  Check them out at the main stage of Webster Hall this Sunday 6/27!

Check back for release date/album name announcement! We love you for reading this and we hope you're living your life as heathens this summer and getting the most out of not being dead.  Keep it real. 1 <3.
